Gibson Brothers performance Saturday to benefit Habitat for Humanity

CHAZY The Champlain Valley chapter of Habitat for Humanity will welcome renowned recording artists and North Country natives Eric and Leigh Gibson, better known as the Gibson Brothers, for a concert at Chazy Central Rural School this Saturday, Oct. 11. The Gibson Brothers will take the stage for a 7 p.m. performance. Concert proceeds will go to the general construction fund for the CVHFH to help eliminate sub-standard housing in Clinton County. We are excited that the Gibson Brothers have agreed to help the Champlain Valley Habitat for Humanity raise funds to further our mission, said CVHFH director Keri Mack. As North Country natives, they are certainly aware of the lack of decent, affordable housing in the area. We are thrilled to be a part of this event, said Eric Gibson. Habitat for Humanity has done so much for the less fortunate. We hope folks will come out for a fun night, knowing their hard-earned dollars will help people in need. The concert proceeds will go into the chapters general construction fund to purchase essential items such as doors, windows, drywall, plywood and insulation for local Habitat for Humanity projects. Since being named Emerging Artists of the Year at the 1998 International Bluegrass Music Association Awards, the Gibson Brothers have carved out a unique sound while breaking new ground with albums Red Letter Day and Bona Fide. Their latest album, Iron & Diamonds, their fourth on the Sugar Hill Record label, will be available for purchase at the concert. The concert will give the public an opportunity to hear songs from the new album performed live, and the Gibson Brothers will sign copies and meet with the audience during intermission. General admission tickets for the concert are $15. Tickets may be purchased at the door the night of the concert, based on availability, or at the following locations in advance: The Weathercock Restaurant, 9688 State Route 9, Chazy; Cornerstone Drug & Gift, 72 Champlain St., Rouses Point; or at the information desk at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh Angell College Center or Corner-Stone Bookshop, 110 Margaret St., in Plattsburgh; For more information, contact CVHFH at 578-4857 or David Pearce at 562-2012.
